Recipe reference from the links above.
200g Pumpkin Puree
100g Coconut Milk
60g *Gula Melaka/Palm Sugar
2 pieces Pandan Leaves (tied knots)
1) To make pumpkin puree, peeled and deseeded, cut roughly in small pieces and steam the pumpkin till softened. Drain any water and mash the pumpkin with a fork while still hot. Blend the puree with blender for a smoother texture.
2) Chop the palm sugar into smaller pieces. Cook with coconut milk in a small pot with low flame until sugar dissolved, sieve the mixture into a bowl.
3) Combine all the ingredients to a heatproof bowl. Half-fill a cooking pot with water and bring to a simmer. Set the heatproof bowl in the mouth of the pot and cook with low flame. Stir the mixture occasionally. Cook for about 15 minutes or until the mixture thickened.
*can use granulated sugar or rock sugar and adjust the sweetness to your preference.
as there are no preservatives added, advisable to keep in refrigerator and to consume all within 3 days.
Enjoy our brekkie :D
